Database Manager on June 08, 2005:

Identified through on-line information from Daniel Hopkins. -- From Holy Trinity Anglican It still has its mechanical action total of 303 original pipes. I have added contacts on the pedal board and keyboard to add electrical action pipe ranks on seperate offset chests. I have added to the electrical action part, a Midi control system. The Original Tracker action instrument can still be played by itself or with the three added ranks. The total with original tracker action 10 ranks = 13 stops with more to come.
